I can’t sleep!
So much anxiety I can no longer sleep. I finally fell asleep “lastnight” at 8 a.m.
Too many things running through my head. LAST Friday was when our RSVPs were due…of course we’ve had so many to track down and getting no answer. SO ANNOYING!
I can’t seem to get a hold of ANY of my vendors!! Seriously WTF?!
Then on top of silly wedding stress I started worrying about what to wear on our honeymoon to Italy!
How are the rest of you August brides doing?!! It’s almost here!!

Two weeks for me! We’re doing pretty okay I think. However, I did just open my cupcake contract to see how many I ordered and my payment was supposed to be due today. Whoops, she told me she would e-mail me so I had been waiting for that! I also can’t get ahold of my photobooth people. I’ve sent two e-mails. I’m going to call on Tuesday if I haven’t heard anything by then.

I just feel so exhausted, Im not sleeping well, I have wedding nightmares, and Im waiting for the last of our wedding RSVPs to come in. I keep looking over and over our guest list trying to figure out who is coming and who isn’t. Im trying to make sure I have all of our stuff prepared and ready to go but Im pretty sure Im gonna drop the ball somewhere. Plus we are leaving the next weekend for our honeymoon in Germany. So Im trying to make sure Ive got everything prepared for that as well!

I have so much going on with my job and fiance’s 3 jobs that we have no free time whatsoever. The stress hasn’t hit me yet because I honestly don’t have any excess energy to waste on stress. I’m hoping things don’t get too crazy in the next few weeks because my job is about to get very demanding.

We’re pretty much set to go, but the stress dreams have started. I dreamt last night that I was 45 minutes late for the wedding. I wasn’t even dressed or showered yet.

OMG I was dreaming up until last week that my dress was too small, or something was wrong with it… now that I have tried it on I’m ok with that. Was also dreaming that I forgot to order flowers, people didn’t show up thought it was the next day. Gut sleeping has become difficult. On top of that I have sprained my ankle and I’m tryying to fight off a cold….Pls give me a bit of a break only 3 1/5 weeks left this is the last thing I need….

I must be in the minority, because I’m not having any wedding dreams. AT. ALL. I think I’ve gotten to the point where everything is going wrong (GM passport issues our coordinator quitting at the venue, a (different) Groomsmen dropping out, etc., etc.) that I’m expecting the worst, and praying for the best, lol.. I just want it to be done, and over with, already!

I’ve now had 2 dreams that the wedding got moved up but I didn’t find out until the day of, and of course I wasn’t ready. I’m starting to piece things together. I finished 99% of my centerpieces today, just ran out of vase filler or I could’ve finished. I would gotten more stuff done if the olympics weren’t on!

I don’t know whether I’m in denial, or I’ve actually got a handle on things and succeeded in keeping the wedding simple…
Feeling a tiny bit more stressed, but not sleeping any worse than usual, and not dreaming. The only thing I’m really worried about is the fact that I don’t have the fabric I need in order to add sleeves to my gown. Gonna tackle that Thursday and Friday when I have time off from work.
Yeah, I must be in denail. 😛

The wedding is just over a week away and…
I’m excited, but we’re running into little issues that are majorly taking away from the fun of it!!! An older guest RSVPd 3 days ago with an uninvited guest! I got a verbal RSVP from her at my bridal shower a month ago. Suddenly she needs a guest for mobility issues… which woud be fine except our tables are basically full! Trying to shuffle people AGAIN! UGH!
My BMs are doubting the colour of their jewelry that they didn’t see yet… one has asked if she can get ‘backup jewelry’ in case what I had a friend make didn’t match enough. After all the effort to get this jewelry made by my friend (who is making a 1 1/2 hour trip on Sunday to visit me, deliver jewelry, etc) I’m not just going to say ‘Yeah, let’s go with something else”.
AND the bridesmaid dresses are not ready yet!!! (Dress problem post from last night when I couldn’t sleep: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/vent-bridesmaids-dresses-problem-and-just-over-a-week-away).

I’ve had two wedding dreams though! One was 6 months ago, where I was about to walk down the aisle, and instead ended up looking for a payphone so I could call my cousin that I had forgotten to invite!
The other was two weeks ago. I was in a theatrical martial arts style fight with some cartoon-style villain with a black handlebar moustache. I was hopping about ten feet in the air and doing cool spin kicks over Oscar the Grouch style garbage cans – all in my wedding dress! It swirled and twirled around pretty cool, I must say!

I’ve hated this whole planning from start to finish, and I know I’m extra cranky and high-strung right now. We’ve had problems every step of the way, and we’re still trying to sort things out with some of our vendors. And don’t even get me started on our officiant, who stands us up for meetings and has gone MIA for weeks at a time.
My current major stress is that it looks like we aren’t going to have a rehearsal. No one involved — parents, wedding party, Fiance, me — knows the step-by-step of the ceremony, so now even my Maid/Matron of Honor is a little twitchy. The officiant is going to be out of town in the days leading up to the wedding and plans to drive back the day of the wedding. Considering his record on timeliness thus far, that also has me panicking.
There are a zillion things left to do. On one hand, maybe we should’ve given ourselves more than six months to plan this, but on the other, I can’t imagine going through this for any longer. Fiance and I keep reading about post-wedding depression, but we’re sure we’re going to have post-wedding mania. We’re so excited to get married, but we couldn’t care less about the wedding; it’s not at all the one we wanted. I’m feeling extremely apathetic about all of it, and I’m hoping that will pass by the time we hit next weekend. We are, however, really excited for the few days after the wedding, when this is all over, all the family is gone and we’re on a minimoon, by ourselves, as a married couple. I couldn’t even get the full week off after the wedding, so we only get skip town for a few days, but they will be glorious. That thought is basically all that’s carrying us right now — and we haven’t booked the hotel yet.
Congrats to all the bees getting married this weekend!
